Again and again, I share learnings from leaders, writers, artists, often around themes core to leadership such as presence.
Today some Wisdom from the sagest bear of sage bears, Winnie the Pooh.
Not for the first time, this is a post inspired by Georgie Loxton.
With Georgie, Wealth Management and Financial Planning are the services she offers, freedom and so much more, holistically, are what her clients receive from her. An expression of who she is is in her blogs, and recently she wrote: “Lessons from a silly-old-bear“, an excerpt here:
“For me, the most important lesson was the power of doing nothing. Pooh is a big fan of nothing. I think we all need more nothing.
“People say nothing is impossible. But I do nothing every day.”
“Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.”
Pooh would make a great investor. He is humble (“I am a bear of very little brain”), and he understands that if you want to end up with something, the best thing you can do is nothing. I can almost imagine Warren Buffett saying exactly the same thing.
If in doubt, be more like Pooh.”
I loved Georgie’s thoughts and also the wisdom of Pooh, including:
“Today is my favourite day. Yesterday, when it was tomorrow, it was too much day for me.”
Leading on from Georgie’s post, it reminded me of a wonderful little book.
I highly recommend the book (and perhaps the audiobook), and for now, I leave you with this example:
